Sterling actively and strategically supports your institution’s compliance risk management program as a valuable resource for regulatory interpretation and early updates regarding proposed rule-making and consultative assistance with implementation of final or amended rules, development or review of compliance policies, procedures and controls, and risk-based compliance reviews designed to assess your institution’s compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
Our Compliance Consulting and Review Services are designed to ensure your Compliance Management Program is appropriately risk focused, proactive and effective. We offer a full suite of comprehensive lending and deposit compliance reviews and BSA|AML Audits that can be tailored to your unique business model or risk profile. We can also help you develop, enhance, or retool your CMS or BSA|AML program through risk assessments, program evaluations, policies, procedures, and customized training, as well as aid your compliance or management team in addressing identified weaknesses, violations or matters requiring attention in supervisory reports of examination or enforcement actions.
Maximize efficiency and effectiveness of your compliance or BSA|AML program by engaging us for independent compliance reviews or BSA|AML audits. Sterling partners with clients to develop a risk-based approach. Reviews are comprehensive and detailed, provide meaningful insight and perspective, and consistently stand up to rigorous regulatory examinations.
Whether you need assistance with risk assessments; documenting or retooling your CMS or BSA|AML program, policies, or procedures; training your Board, lending, retail or operations staff; preparing for regulatory compliance or BSA exams; or addressing identified compliance weaknesses, violations or enforcement actions, Sterling is your trusted risk management partner.
Creating written compliance policies and procedures can be daunting and buying them “off the shelf” is often just as cumbersome because you still have to wade through the boilerplate language and customize the document to fit your unique business model. We provide turnkey documents that you can take to your Board for approval and implement with ease.
Our Beacon™ service provides you access to our staff by phone and email for any consumer compliance or BSA-related questions, interpretations, and document reviews.
This service is part of all compliance engagement packages but may be selected a la carte for your institution. Our Beacon™ consulting service allows you to call or email us at any time — an important compliance lifeline.
